Recently they added music kits to their library and they also offer logos and idents and sound effects like nature sounds domestic sounds, …

Why do I add it to my list if it’s not free?

The best acapella websites

Looperman

The best acapella websites

My personal favorite! Probably one of the easiest to use and 1 of the best acapella websites in the list.

Why? Because the samples, sounds and a capellas have been uploaded by users themselves and are completely free and no adds!

Pros

  • You can discover some great unknown talent in about any possible genre. Besides acapellas, you can find loops and samples, software and VST’s, complete tracks, beats and mixes.
  • The only thing to do is register and download in 1 simple click!
  • The easy to use search engine allows you to choose by member, by keyword, tempo, genre, male or female, vocal style and even auto-tune.
  • You can put your own samples to get feedback on your music

Cons

  • Quality depends because the samples are uploaded by users, some bad surprises sometimes…

 

Acapell.net

The best acapella websites

 

 

 

Acapell.net offers high quality and free a capellas in mp 3 format. They have a huge library of the most popular artists and songs of the moment and some classics in about any genre. From madonna to Sia, from Muse to AC/DC and from 50 cent to Pitbull, they really have plenty!

Pros

  • Their library is huge! You will be able to find about any a capella you want from top artists and famous songs
  • About any genre is represented. Alternative, Electronic, Hip-Hop, Metal, Pop, R’nB, blues, disco, jazz
  • Top notch quality in MP 3 format

Cons

  • You can’t listen to them right away and it’s a long road of annoying adds before you finally get to have a listen to it.
  • The adds! They warn you to be tolerant on adds and I guess that is the price to pay to get free a capellas. When you click on the download button, you first get 4 sec of adds before you can continue, when you press ‘skip this add’ you get another 4 seconds and then again 5 seconds before you finally listen and download your a capella. That makes at least 3 adds for each a capella …  even your ad blocker won’t work, so you better be tolerant and patient.
  • Royalty free? 1 question I ask myself is if the a capellas are really Royalty free. It’s not mentioned anywhere and I can’t imagine how you can possibly use a capellas from famous artists just like that. I did some research but didn’t find anything and  tried to click on ‘rules’ but nothing will open.

 

Acapellas4u

The best acapella websites

 

 

 

Acapallas 4 u has been on for a while now and is supported by famous DJ’s, producers and remixers. Acapellas4u offers  a wide range of free acapellas, vocals,  loops, samples and DJ tools.

Pros

  • They have a very large library with more than 30.000 acapellas, dj tools and vocals
  • You can upload your own stuff!
  • You can support artists by buying their tracks on Amazon (or whatever place they are selling or promoting it)

Cons

  • The layout is absolutely horrible and navigation even worse. It’s really difficult to find your way and it doesn’t look professional at all.
  • You are allowed (only) 30 downloads in 30 days. Not sure if this is really a ‘con’ because 30 is already enough I guess, but I don’t like restrictions
  • You need to view an add before downloading ( not as intrusive Acapell.net and again, it’s the price to pay)
  • Audio previews, a capellas per artists and BPM data are only available if you are in the ‘forum supporters’ group or you need to upgrade and give a donation.

 

Voclr.it

The best acapella websites

 

 

 

Voclr.it is rather new but they are one the most fast-growing websites for a capellas. They have already built up a solid library of free a capellas and it’s growing strong!

Pros

  • Although the site is quite new, they have a library of more than 2000 a capellas and this is growing every day
  • A capellas are available for free download

Cons

  • You need to get pro to preview.
  • The filter menu is quite basic ( only bpm and key filters). You can find a capellas per artist through the search menu but not per genre, gender,…
  • On the second download page, I couldn’t find the download button right away. It is a greyish button that doesn’t really catches your attention. (but ok, this is small issue, I admit)

 

Free Vocals

the best acapella websites

 

 

 

Free Vocals is a bit different than the previous websites in the way that they work together with professional vocalists and even though some are free, the majority is not.

The a capalles are licenced but not sold as a matter. That means that you will need to sign a licence and agree to some terms and conditions. You pay, not for the ‘product’ itself, but to get the copyright of the track and publishing writer percentages go to the artist or vocalist.

pros

  • The a capellas are professional and of outstanding quality performed by vocalists
  • You can upload your productions ( for non-profit promotion)
  • Great if you are looking for unique, quality samples

cons

  • The whole paperwork behind the licence agreement and copyright.
  • You must obtain permission from the website to feature the vocalist’s name in the title.
  • Limited choice of free, Royalty free vocals.
  • Although the name of the website is ‘Free Vocals’, it’s not completely free
  • Samples are not Royalty free 8 see terms and conditions)

 

Acapella heaven

the best acapella websites

 

 

 

 

The idea behind Acapella heaven is to bring creative people together. Artists and vocalists are submitting their tracks to the website and are exchanging services. As a producer, you need to submit your material and it has be approved by the songwriter and their agent.

pros

  • New formula, a great way for songwriters to get heard.
  • The opportunity to work together with professional vocalists and get exclusive material

cons

  • Not free! You need a full membership to use their service. Gold, bronze and silver membership are quite expensive
  • A lot of restrictions when you are not Gold

 

Ccmixter.org

The best acapella websites

 

 

 

Ccmixter.org is a music platform where musicians, vocalists and DJ’s , producers or remixers work together. they also have free a capellas and samples. You can get instant access to music for film, video games, video projects, podcasts,…

pros

  • A great way to connect with other musicians. You can ‘work’ together with more than 45ooo artists from all around the world. Create samples for remixes, remix tracks and  use samples and a capellas into your own creations.
  • You can promote your creations on the website and get votes.
  • They have great events such as remix events and the big summer music fest.
  • You can licence Royalty free music for commercial projects

cons

  • None, it’s a really cool website

Free Sound

The best acapella websites

What is an a capella?

You’ve probably came across the term A capella if you are a signer or songwriter, a music aficionado or a music producer but do you know what this term exactly stands for and what is an a capella ?

You might be surprised to know that you have probably spelled it wrong your whole life. If you have already searched the net for a capellas,  you will probably have noticed huge differences in spelling such as a capella, acapella, accapella or acapela , …. and most versions are wrong as you will find out later.

But what is an a capella?

The term A Capella has Italian roots and it literally means ‘manners of chapel’, probably beacause of it’s religious origins .

a capella in the Renaissance

what is an a capella

In The Renaissance, a capellas were only performed in choirs during religious ceremonies. It’s only in the early Baroque that some instrument-accompanied forms emerged and were introduced to the public outside the church.

 

In the 18th century, the term has been introduced in the English language. At first it would still apply exclusively to choirs, to later evolve and expand it’s significance to any vocal act without the accompaniment of instruments.

A Capella now stands for a solo singer or group performing without any instruments.

A Capella or Acapella?

There seems to be a debate around the correct way to spell it.  Thought, the correct spelling is claimed to be  ‘A capella’  by experts and in the realm of musical terminolgy,  the other spelling ‘ Acapella‘, even though is wrong, is frequently used in the English vocabulary.

Why are a capellas still popular?

what is an acapella

Even though, nowadays,  it is hard to get around instruments in music, a capella versions of songs seems to still make their way into the music industry.

 

If you are searching around for a capellas on music platforms like Youtube or Soundcloud you will be able to find about any version of a song preformed a capella. And how beautiful isn’t it to hear your favorite artist solo! 

 

Why do I do speak about a capellas on a music production website?

A Capellas are commonly used in music production for remix purposes or to add vocals to a track.

Sampling techniques are used a lot by professionals and the options are endless if you like to play with sounds. Like music samples, A capellas and vocals can be chopped and managed in any DAW ( What is a DAW? ) and adding a capellas or vocals tend always to bring that little extra that is sometimes missing in your productions.

What I like about using a capellas in my production is the fact that it’s fun to use and that you can be as creative with it as you want with it!

When you make a survey about music taste, people tend to choose songs with vocals above instrumentals only.

In Electronic music it is a bit different, but vocals can be a great plus to go along with a strong beats and bass line. They are very popular in EDM and big Room , but in some genres like Techno or minimal, where the attention goes to drums, bass and details, adding a few vocals can lift up the sometimes ‘cold’ aspect of this specific genre.

When you are using a capellas or vocals into your music production you should always watch out for Royalty free material as you would want to avoid any copyright infringements in the future.

Some websites offer free, Royality free acapellas that are ready to use….

Loops and sample packs : How to use them

Loops and sample packs : How to use them

” In music,  sampling is the act of taking a portion, or sample, of one sound recording and reusing it as an instrument or a sound recording in a different song or piece”

Loops and sample packs : How to use them

Whether or not to use samples ?

There is a lot of discussion around the use of loops and samples and sample packs. Major music snobs (from which I am a part too hahaha ) will say that ‘Real Musicians’ don’t use audio sample packs and I agreed with that… at first! Loops and Sample packs: How to use them correctly and don’t make the same mistakes that some producers do?

When you try to make it as a musician the main goal is to be great at it but also to have fun ! (and maybe make a living out of it ….but that’s another discussion) . You strongly believe you are going to be the next ‘Beethoven’ of the electro scene and you WILL create everything by yourself, rejecting samples that are only good for shitty EDM producers with no talent or inspiration…but it’s not that easy…and some website do offer high quality music samples and even free music sample packs that can help you out starting out or that can be used to recreate something new out of it for more experimented producers!

 

Using samples is ok…

I changed my mind about audio sample packs and because what you really want when making music IS HAVING FUN and when you start off it’s already enough struggling in a technical way , especially when like me , you have absolutely zero knowledge of what so ever. I never heard of scales, chord progressions and I have no musical background. I use a lot of A capellas for example.

The options are endless if you like to play with sounds. Like samples, A capellas  can be chopped and managed in any DAW and adding a capellas or vocals tend always to bring that little extra that is sometimes missing in your productions.

What I like about using a capellas in my production is the fact that it’s fun to use and that you can be as creative with it as you want with it!

So the use of samples makes it a lot more easier and fun too ! Sorry but I can’t make a kick drum or clap and don’t want to learn it … I like creating drum loops though and basslines …

 

Where to find samples ?

The internet is full of samples, sample packs , loops,…in any category from Deep House to techno, if you know where to look. To help you through the jungle of websites that provide Sample Packs and other VST plugins, I made a complete list of the 10 best websites for Loops and Samplepacks.

Good news is that most if these website offer free music sample packs !

 

Check it out here Royalty free Loops and Samples

UT ! Remember…

I think the use of audio sample packs is ok and there is an unlimited choice of very good free audio sample packs and free samples out there to enjoy from BUT until a certain point …Using kick samples because you don’t know how to create a kick or you want to recreate an electronic kick drum is ok but when it comes to bass line and melody , unless you are making a remix or you are completely recreating a new sound with this sample I wouldn’t recommend it.

 

Producers that only use samples have no credibility!

When you want to become a producer you should know how to compose a melody …but you can get ideas for composing a melody or a bass line through trying to recreate samples or edit samples them in a way that makes a difference. If you want to be serious about music and if you want to be kept serious in the Music business you shouldn’t overdue the use of sample packs because that makes the difference between a bad EDM producer and a respected deep house producer.

 

But of course that depends on what you wan to do and where you want to go in the electronic music scene. I am speaking of a personal choice considering the music I want to do and the fact I am not feeling rewarded when I use samples
